Heavy Duty Industrial Vacuum Loader



The Forvac FV50-E is a heavy duty industrial vacuum loader consisting of a powerhead and integral material collection hopper.

The Forvac FV50-E is an ideal industrial vacuum source for portable use around the plant or to power permanent in plant piping systems.

It can be utilised with hoppers and skips and is manufactured in 5 mm steel throughout.

Power Module

The Forvac FV50-E is electrically powered and features a 50 horsepower, 37kW EFF1, 415v, 3 Phase, 50Hz, TEFC, electric motor.

An IP69 control panel is provided with all necessary controls and motor starters.

All Forvac units feature a positive displacement triple rotary lobe type exhauster. Silencing to 80 Dba at 1 metre free field conditions.

Material Collection Hopper

The Forvac FV50-E features a large 1.0m3 capacity integral material collection hopper.

The hopper is constructed of reinforced carbon steel and is designed to handle negative pressure over 16″ Hg.

The collected material enters the hopper through the radial inlet located at the side of the powerhead.

The Forvac FV50-E should be used in conjunction with a primary collection hopper (not included) or a skip for large volumes, yet can be used singularly for spills up to 1m3.

Filtration System

Forvac high efficiency particulate air filter cassette giving effective cloth area of 15m2 and 99.75% efficiency.

Filter media is anti-static, water and oil repellent with electro mechanical filter cleaning at pre-set intervals controlled by timers in the control panel. Stainless steel inserts.

Anticipated Performance

The FV50-E’s 50hp (37kW) motor and positive displacement rotary lobe type vacuum producer provides the following performance specifications:

Conveying Rates (based on sand):

@ 120m horizontal – 5 tons per hour
@ 60m horizontal – 8 tons per hour

Material handling rates and conveying distance will vary based on the bulk density and particle size of the material, vertical rises and bends in pipework, as well as the skill and efficiency of the operating personnel.
